rx2600 firmware:"not found file" under EFI partition.

Hello,

I download the rx2600 firmware package from HP website,

I follow the installation instructions to update,but in this step:

"Locate the file "update_SFW.efi" and type "update_SFW.efi", then press ENTER. The firmware update program begins execution."

the system always report:

"update_SFW.efi" not found,

I sure the file in the EFI partition,

Is there something I'm missing in the prerequisites?

please refer to attachment

Thanks~

Re: rx2600 firmware:"not found file" under EFI partition.

Hi Neil,

i could not see the attachment you referred to.

This should work fine by just executing the 'update_SFW.efi' , pls find the start of the output below:

What system f/w revision are you currently on ?
Did you execute the command while you are located in the directory where this .EFI file is located (same path).

Re: rx2600 firmware:"not found file" under EFI partition.

I don't know how and where you copied the file to EFI partition. Please clarify!

I usually run it from USB thumb drive or copy from such drive to EFI:


fs0:\> update_sfw

Re: rx2600 firmware:"not found file" under EFI partition.

Hi,

sorry,I am new foe unix,

my system f/w:
System 02.31
BMC 01.53
iLO MP 03.30

I follow the release note steps as below:

1.You may need superuser privileges. Download "PF_CPEAKSYS0231BEFI.tar.gz" and then FTP to an empty directory on the server requiring the firmware update.

2.Use 'gunzip' to unzip the file:
#gunzip PF_CPEAKSYS0231BEFI.tar.gz

3.Use the 'tar' command to extract the firmware file 'update_SFW.efi':
#tar -xvf PF_CPEAKSYS0231BEFI.tar

4.Determine the character-special device file for the EFI partition on your disk. Type: "ioscan -fknC disk". The file will be /dev/rdsk/*s1. (i.e. /dev/rdsk/c2t1d0s1)

5.Type the following command to copy the firmware file to the EFI partition, using the character-special device file determined in step 4 in place of 'c2t1d0':
"/usr/sbin/efi_cp -d /dev/rdsk/c2t1d0s1 update_SFW.efi /efi/hpux/update_SFW.efi"

6.Verify the file was successfully copied to the EFI partition using the following command: "/usr/sbin/efi_ls -d /dev/rdsk/c2t1d0s1 /efi/hpux"

7.Type: "/usr/sbin/shutdown -ry now" to reboot the system to the "EFI Boot Manager".

8.At the shell prompt, type "fs0:", replacing "fs0:" with each "fs" entry. in the table until you find the volume containing the "update_SFW.efi" file that was copied to the EFI partition in the previous instructions. We will assume this volume is labeled fs0 for the remainder of these instructions.

9.Type "fs0:", then press ENTER

10.Locate the file "update_SFW.efi" and type "update_SFW.efi", then press ENTER. The firmware update program begins execution. Follow any on-screen instructions.

I try to upload the release note again.

Thank you.
Torsten.

Re: rx2600 firmware:"not found file" under EFI partition.

Maybe you worked with a corrupted download or the file was damaged during transfer to the server (ftp?).

I would download again and start over.

Consider to use a thumb drive and run it from there (or better to copy to EFI partition first).

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
